When can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Benllech and am I required to be at the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Benllech you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the sale agreement is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Benllech)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
How can we know in advance if a Benllech conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Benllech getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
My fiancee and I are in the process of looking at apartments in Benllech and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with UBS.
It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Barclays are being problematic. The Benllech solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I inherited a basement flat in Benllech, conveyancing formalities finalised 8 years ago.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
